About Derek Goebel

Woodside Cabins is family owned and operated. Olga and I have been in the vacation cabin business for 20 years and take great pride in our properties. I grew up in the area and we both have a deep love and appreciation for the Blue Ridge Mountains and our beautiful Shenandoah Valley.

Derek Goebel purchased this cabin in 1998

Why Derek Goebel chose Rileyville

Simplicity is just what it implies. The cabin is simple in nature yet abounds with all the amenities to make your stay a comfortable one. The cabin sits on 6 wooded acres at the end of a private road and is a great place to experience nature at its best.

What makes this cabin unique

The large screen porch lets you take in the outside world in the comfort of a covered environment. With the woods all around you the quiet solitude of the place cannot be beat.

Fantastic little cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Simplicity. It's small - basically one room plus the two small bedrooms - but that was perfect for the two of us and our dog. Great setting in the woods above the river, which was visible through the trees when we visited in February. Easy access to Shenandoah NP at either Front Royal or Rt. 211. The hot tub on the porch was great and felt very private, and the gas fireplace was really nice. About the only actual complaint we had was that the shower head could use replacing - it just kind of sprayed all over the place. Pretty small nit to pick. Otherwise, though, it's a very clean, tidy cabin that we'll plan on visiting again.

Secluded and Simple

  • 5 of 5

Everything I imagined it would be. Quiet little cabin on the side of the mountain completely secluded. Never had to call Derek as everything was perfect. Hot tub was nice to have in the evening to relax even more. Will definitely be staying here again.

Lovely private cabin in the middle of nowhere

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely adored our stay! From the winding drive up the mountain to the freshly baked cookies upon our arrival. The cabin was even better than pictured- the covered deck with hot tub, picnic table, and hammock was beyond perfect for a relaxing weekend away from the city. The secluded private location made you feel like you were in the middle of nowhere- but still only 10-15 minutes from gas stations and grocery stores- it was the perfect location. Outside, you can’t hear anything but the leaves falling and the crickets chirping. The couch is comfortable and the flat screen had direct tv with lots of channels to choose from for late night movies. The bedrooms were mirror images of each other with comfortable queen sized beds- perfect for two friends, two couples, or a family. It was the most relaxed we’ve been in a long time. Also, the dogs loved it!

Thanks Derek and Olga, we will definitely be back!
